As soon as anyone utters the word “LEGO”, it brings back countless childhood memories. Not only have we grown up building the most creative things with these unique, plastic bricks, but today we see our descendants equally enjoying the experience of assembling these construction toys to form innovative objects.
If you’re looking for new ideas, here are some of the things to build with Lego when you’re bored. We agree that these designs might be difficult to replicate but that is exactly what the challenge is.
If you are a bird lover, this unique Lego creation is ideal for you. Instead of those boring bird feeders, you can use this colorful alternative which will not only serve as a decoration item but will also attract flocks of birds to your garden.
Everyone possesses one of those boring, L-shaped bookends. Agreed that they do serve the purpose of holding our favorite titles in place, but options are quite limited for those who are looking for something other than these standardized designs.
Why not build customized flanks via your favorite construction toys? You may use the design portrayed in the image above as an inspiration, or create one out of your imagination.
Every time you walk into an office for a meeting or an interview, you see business cards placed on the reception. They are placed there to be taken by the visitors in case they need to make a further appointment or follow-up regarding an issue. These cards also serve as a means of marketing the business or the service being provided. However, mostly the way they are presented makes them look very unappealing and people often leave without picking one.
Amongst one of the most useful things to build with Lego when you’re bored, lies this attention-grabbing cardholder.
Are you tired of the jumbled cables that are difficult to untangle at the time of use? Not only this but messy wires may also cause you to fall and get hurt.
It might not have crossed your mind but the tiny hands of Lego figurines can hold your cables and serve as perfect organizers. To keep your daily use items better sorted, you may complement the cable organizer with a Lego key holder.
There are moments when you wish for time to pause. Even though this is not realistically possible, you can still get the “feel” via this decorative Lego wall clock.
Not only will this piece add to the aesthetic beauty of your room, but it is also quite easy to create unlike most of the other items we have listed.
We all look for pretty and unique ways of packing gift items for our loved ones. Even though wrapping papers and cardboard boxes are widely used, aren’t they quite old school?
How about creating a beautiful and colorful gift box using Lego blocks? Not only will it have a more personalized touch but is also bound to bring a smile to the face of your “special someone”.
Imagine you are running late for the office; you rush towards the exit door hurriedly but are unable to find your car keys. If this situation seems familiar, you are not alone. We have all been in circumstances where we’ve misplaced keys to one item or the other and failed to retrieve them when needed.
Many households have found a simple solution to this problem by placing all their keys in a container. Others have purchased key holders available in the market to stay more organized. You could stand out by creating a customized and colorful one that is difficult to miss even for those who forget to put items in their designated places.
Whether you are too broke to spend on jewelry or you want to create a statement with your unique style, a Lego necklace has got you covered.

Place colorful flowers in these self-made, flamboyant vases and truly enjoy the experience of interior decoration.
Lego boxes are not a very unique creation and many of us may have already built them numerous times. However, their usefulness cannot be denied. Above are two images that portray how they can be used in different ways; as a tissue box holder and as a container for kitchen utensils.
Next time you are looking for a container and fail to find one, try creating one out of your kids’ favorite toys and your problem might be solved.
We’ve compiled a list of creations shared over online platforms for those who might need some inspiration. However, many other things can be built with Lego when you’re bored. You might have far more innovative ideas than the ones we have listed and we would love it if you share them with us via the comments section.
